Servings: 4 servings
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, add the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir to combine and cook until just fork-tender, about 5 minutes. Let cool a few minutes.
Top 4 slices of the brioche bread evenly with the cooked apples. Place a second slice of bread on top and press down to somewhat seal the two pieces together. See notes if using thick-sliced bread.
Whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla in a medium bowl.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat or a griddle to 350°F. Coat with butter or cooking spray.
Dip each “sandwich” into the egg mixture and allow it to soak up the batter for a minute or two. Let the excess batter drip off and place onto the hot skillet.
If desired, sprinkle extra cinnamon on top. Cook 1-2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Flip and repeat.
Serve topped with maple syrup, chopped pecans or walnuts, or powdered sugar, if desired.
Tips and Techniques
** Nutritional information is an estimate and may vary.
- If using very thick bread, you can cut a pocket into one side of the crust and stuff the apple mixture inside, rather than make a “sandwich.”
- Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Consume within a day or two at the most, for best results.
